Where's My Cape?

How come I forget this? Why have I gone all these years on my own strength? Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

When I realize that I am not even remotely alone in handling life, I become so much happier and positive and believing for the results that are promised to me.

I try to start my day in the promises that God gives. But sometimes, the old life, the enemy, the evil one, whatever you want to call it, tries to take away my joy by dragging the old past into my thoughts. The adversary would like to see me rolling around in the slop crying out, "woe is me" loudly for all to hear. God says to not look ahead or behind because today has enough worries of it's own. If those old problems or new worries are going to come at me, I will stay in the present and deal with it in God power.

So my new thought, my new planted promise is that the Creator of the Universe is on my side! Whew, is that empowering or what??

Now, I'm going to put on my cape (putting on the full armor of God) and start my Sunday in joy!

"God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels."

Eph 6:11, The Message
